1 hr 4 min

Want to get started with an online business but don’t feel like you’re an expert in anything?

Maybe you’ve started a business but you’re struggling to monetize it?

A few short years ago, Shane Sams and his wife Jocelyn were school teachers.

In their off-hours, they built several successful online businesses, including ElementaryLibrarian.com, which sold for over $1 million in 2017.

Today they run FlippedLifestyle.com along with the Flipped Lifestyle podcast, to help others try and replicate the success they’ve had online, and specifically take advantage of the membership model.

Tune in to hear:

  • how to set up your membership site the right way
  • why you might be closer than you think to getting your first paying members
  • the payment tiers that work for Shane and his students
  • how Shane and Jocelyn continue to grow their community year-over-year

394: Todd Henry - The Hidden Forces That Drive Your Best Work (The Motivation Code)
Text LEARNERS to 44222 for more details about The Learning Leader Circle Full notes at www.LearningLeader.com Twitter: @RyanHawk12 #394: Todd Henry - The Hidden Forces That Drive Your Best Work Show notes: * What is the most valuable land in the world? * "The graveyard... All of the stuff we carry with us for our life and never put out into the world... All of that valued is buried in the ground." * The two words that Todd wrote down after coming to this realization? "Die Empty." * “The rough edges they decry you for now… Are the very rough edges they will celebrate you for later.” * What drives us to unleash our best work? * Drawing on interviews with over 100,000 working professionals, the answer is no one size fits all. Todd Henry shows, in fact, that there are six unique "motivational archetypes"... * They are: * The Visionary strives to make her mark on the world by building an ideal future, even when others may not see as far ahead. * The Achiever relishes a finished product and must conquer whatever obstacle comes his way, no matter how difficult or time-consuming. * The Team Player values being part of a group and will go to great lengths to achieve unity and enhance collaboration. * The Learner is obsessed with mastering new skills and showing off what she knows--which is often a lot. * The Optimizer thrives when systems are running smoothly and finds great satisfaction when things are done the "right way." * The Key Contributor shines at the center of the action, especially when others can recognize the value of his work. * Todd's work teaches us to decode our motivational type so we can structure projects, have conversations, make decisions, and even choose career paths to amp up engagement and achieve fulfillment. Once we know how to activate our inner drivers, we can transform the work we do into the work we love. * Why should you write? * "If you can learn to write, you'll be invited into rooms." * "Turn the ineffable into something." * Read, comprehend, synthesize, write... * "People won't follow you because of your position or title. You have to persuade them. You have to cut through the noise, hone your skills. It's a craft you must work on." * Have empathy, uniqueness, precisions. Have empathy for the end user. * Have an intended audience: one person in mind. Ramp up your empathy for the end user... * "We wait for tasks to motivate us and that's exactly backwards. We need to bring our motivation to what we do. We have to train ourselves to bring our motivation to our work instead of waiting for our tasks to motivate us." * Because of the motivation code, "I have a language now that I never had a language for previously" * A new framework for understanding people. It's created "aha" moments * "Self-awareness is the first step to maturity." * "It helps use discern areas where we're insecure." * What was Todd thinking five minutes prior to going on stage at the Global Leadership Summit? 10,000 in the audience and hundreds of thousands watching worldwide... * "I reminded myself how grateful I was to be there..." It was calming.

502: The Way to Build Wealth, with Chris Hogan
Chris Hogan: Everyday Millionaires Chris Hogan is a best-selling author, a personal finance expert, and America’s leading voice on retirement, investing, and building wealth. His goal is to help as many people as possible avoid financial traps and set their families up for the future. His book Retire Inspired: It’s Not an Age; It’s a Financial Number* is a number one national best seller, and The Chris Hogan Show has millions of downloads. He is also the author of Everyday Millionaires: How Ordinary People Built Extraordinary Wealth―and How You Can Too*. In this conversation, Chris and I discuss the national study that his organization conducted on everyday millionaires. We address some of the common misconceptions about millionaires. Plus, we detail both the mindset and behaviors that millionaires have that support the creation of wealth. Key Points The top three occupations for millionaires are engineer, accountant, and teacher. Millionaires steer clear of debt. Millionaires have a mentality of abundance vs. scarcity. They embrace change and usually see adversity as an opportunity for growth. Millionaires are frugal, not flashy. They spend less than the general population on groceries, restaurants and clothing. Employer sponsored retirement plans are a key vehicle the vast majority of millionaires use to build wealth. Only 1 in 5 millionaires receive any kind of inheritance.
